These brownies had a good taste and the icing was very good also. Unfortunately my brownies were accidentally overbaked by about 10-15 minutes so they ended up extremely cakey and sort of dry. I might try these again though and hopefully my timer won't fail again, because I did like the taste. To be honest, I did not add the black pepper because I was a bit skeptical. I thought they were quite tasty without the pepper. The frosting, as I said, was tasty (very chocolatey) and had a nice texture when cooled, very smooth but not sticky so these brownies packed well. I did not taste the Kahlua as much as I had expected. Of course the alcohol baked out of the brownies, especially since I overbaked them. The Kahlua added an interesting flavor, but people who sampled the recipe said it wasn't strong enough that they would identify the flavor as Kahlua. If you really want to have a Kahlua flavor, better add some extra. And if you want fudgy, DO NOT OVERBAKE! I was disappointed with the cakiness due to my own mistake. I may have to try again, bake correctly, and re-rate if the fudginess pushes these to a 5-star recipe.


Delicious! I follwed the recipe exactly, but left out the nuts (not a big fan of nuts). These are easy enough and so yummy!


These brownies were very tasty. The frosting definitely makes them. They are very cake-like rather than the fudgie type brownie I prefer. I started to check on these after 20 minutes and took them out after 23 minutes and they ended up a little dry.
